There is no single element that defines the culture of Woking. It’s the combination of the immaculate, strategic golf course, the Members, the warm welcome in the charming Clubhouse, the history; there is just something unique about playing golf and building relationships here. Perhaps that is why, over recent years, we have doubled the number of category 1 golfers, perhaps it is why we now have a younger membership than we have ever had, perhaps that is why there are more social groups, player groups, dinners and weekend roll-up events. Our men's, ladies’ and junior sections are all thriving and we have a particularly large base of Members not just from Surrey but from much of south west London as our transport links from the city are so good.
Also, as we are still principally a 2-ball Club (albeit with specific windows for other formats, acknowledging that a balance is important), play is always fast which allows Members to get away after their game to do other things. or to linger for refreshments on the Wisteria-clad Pavilion terrace! The regular weekend roll-ups are a major part of Club life at Woking and they ensure that if you turn up without pre-arranged golf, you can still get a game!
If you wish to join and have connections to the Club via existing Full Members, then the traditional route to membership may be open to you, but if you are new to the area or don’t already have such connections, you can apply to be considered for our six month "Temporary Membership" scheme, which allows successful applicants to meet Members and gain the necessary supports for a Full membership application. We normally restrict applicants to those with a handicap of 20 or less for men, and 36 or less for ladies, and the scheme is designed for suitably experienced golfers who are in a position to commit to the financial implications of Full membership upon completion of the required stages. Further details regarding the Subscription and Entrance Fee rates may be supplied upon request.
We also run a Ladies Academy each year in order to introduce new lady golfers to the game via a series of friendly coaching sessions. The 2020 Ladies Academy is not operational due to Covid-19, but we are taking names for the April 2021 intake - please use the email address below to indicate your interest in further information. The Club has also committed to a temporary reduction in the Entrance Fee payable by lady candidates, in order to further strengthen our friendly and active ladies section.
***PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE CLUB IS CURRENTLY OPERATING A WAITING LIST FOR FULL, TEMPORARY AND INTERMEDIATE CATEGORY MEMBERSHIPS, AND THAT RESPONSES TO TEMPORARY MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS OR ENQUIRIES WILL BE DEALT WITH IN SEQUENTIAL ORDER. DESPITE THIS, WE CONTINUE TO WELCOME APPLICATIONS!***
